Review | Althea X Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer in Green Tea and Rose

Thursday, 23 August 2018



When I got these two products from Althea as part of their Althea Angels Welcome Kit, I opened them right away as I was very excited to try them because of two things; Green Tea and Rose are both my favourites when it comes to ingredients for my special care products like sheet masks and wash-off masks. The second reason would be this is the first time I'm trying this kind of product! I've tried oil-to-foam cleanser before and that's surprisingly very convenient although I just can't change my double cleansing method but mask-to-cleanser can be a game changer in my skincare routines.

But first, let's go into details of these new products from Althea!

Now, let's talk about the packaging!




The products came within these boxes. The design is minimalistic with merely wordings for the products' names and the main ingredients' illustrations on the side. If you've noticed, there's the Get It Beauty logo at lower part of the box I'm guessing to indicate that these two products are indeed collaboration between the brand and the beauty TV show.

If you're still confused on what category these product fall on, they're actually wash-off masks, recommended to be used for 10 seconds after first oil-based cleanser (for double cleansing method) on daily basis.




At the back of the boxes are the product descriptions in Korean but rest assured, you can get all the information you need here. Unless of course, if you can read and understand Hangeul  that is. (>.<)




On the side of the box there's a note regarding the natural real rose and green tea leaves contained in the products so don't freak out if it's starting to change in its colour although I haven't seen it yet either. 



The products came in almost transparent tubes which is again, something I'd appreciate as I'm tired of putting those products in tubes that I have in my stash behind the light just to really see how much of product left inside. I also am digging the part where they've provided a space at the back of the tube for me to properly write the opened date for these products.




Like most Korean products, these tubes products have seal stickers at the opening. Oh, you can check the expiration dates at the top of the tube. Such a great movement in Korean skincare manufacturing industries I'd say as it's really nice to know when the products are going to expire instead of counting the months and the years from the manufacturing dates printed on products back in 2015. The format is YYYYMMDD.

Now, let's go to each of the product.


ALTHEA REAL FRESH SKIN DETOXER ROSE


I was catching up with previous episodes of Get It Beauty on iFlix few weeks ago; there's one episode where the participants of the show known as Better Girls were comprising of foreigners that currently residing in Seoul being invited to the show. I recalled there's part of the program where the hosts revealed some beauty products that they discovered during their overseas trips; host Lee Honey brought her self-made perfume while she was visiting Grasse, France and guess where one of these two's main ingredient sourced from? Grasse, France; the world's capital of perfume, indeed.





The consistency for both of these products is similar; thick gel, run slightly and this being the Rose variant is containing rose petals in it. The scent is of course filled with rose scents but it does smell like chemical although slightly.




When it comes to application, I've noticed that Althea recommends for Rose to be used in the morning to refine the skin texture and promote smooth skin texture. I have to agree that this mask-to-foam product does give me that especially when I have flaky skin around my jawline area thanks to multiple allergic reactions I've been having for the past month or so (no worries, I'm consuming lots of veggies these days) and as I've been using this product every other day for more than 3 weeks with use no physical scrubs in my routines as I'm afraid it might be too harsh for my skin' the same goes to my Clarisonic brush, I've seen improvement as the area is very much smooth.



ALTHEA REAL FRESH SKIN DETOXER GREEN TEA





The Green Tea variant is an absolute delight for my skin as it cleanses deeply; I see no dead skin cells whenever I tone my skin after using it in my evening routine. The scent is so nice and therapeutic within the short seconds while applying this on. 



Although I have to let you guys know that around the second week of using this, I applied this on for a little bit longer than I should and with my jawline being sensitive and all at that point, the whole area went overly dried and worst than allergic reaction aftereffect, I cried. I guess the formula is indeed intense hence only 10 seconds recommended for it to work well on your skin so I'd suggest for you to follow the instructions well before using.


Overall, I would say that these two products work well and if you're like me who are busy and got not much time to do physical scrubs, do wash-off masks like 3 times a week; the whole nine, I'd definitely recommend these products maybe for daily use, or every other day you can build up the frequency according to your skin concerns. 


You can purchase these separately with individual price of RM43 or in a set with 10% discount (no code necessary) with both variants. If you're new to Althea and planning to purchase more than RM150, use my link (click here!) for 20% discount! 

So I guess that's all from me! If you have already got these products, do let me know what your thoughts on them by leaving comments down below.
